The Australian Taxation Office app puts tax and super help in your hand, making it easier for you to conduct your tax and super affairs on the go.

The app has many features, some of which allow you to:
- record and manage your car trips, work-related expenses and a number of other expenses on the go using myDeductions and then upload them to the ATO to pre-fill your 2016 tax return
- enrol your voiceprint with the ATO. You can then use this to verify your identity when you call us or to log in to our online services for individuals via the app
- calculate the amount of tax to withhold from salary and wage payments
- search for an Australian business number (ABN) using ABN Lookup
- work out key dates and, depending on your device, set important reminders and alerts for tax and super obligations
- use the Business performance check tool to compare your business with similar businesses in your industry using the latest Small business benchmarks
- watch videos, access checklists and visit SMSF assist for other helpful information for SMSF trustees
- access a number of other useful tools and calculators.

*GPS can be used to record trips in myDeductions. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The ATO app can automatically send usage data to us to help improve its services. You may choose to turn this off at any time.

If you have any questions or feedback about the ATO app, please email us at [email protected] We cannot discuss your personal tax affairs.

ATO APP Love this app it helps me to identify business if registered for GST or not.

Doron G

To lodge a tax return I need to log on to my gov, after logging on to my gov a box appears on the screen where you can click skip or next, but it's impossible to go past this box as it won't let you go down to the "skip" button. Please fix it.

Romeo Gadze

Does not work at all on Android. Pages keep centering and won't scroll down to press 'next ' buttons. Will have to install etax on my laptop.

Tyler Gale

Works well Has all the functionality I need, and performance is much better than the old version.

Claire Gulyas

Doesn't work since update Used to love this app. Since the last update it doesn't calculate the monthly tax anymore.

Kym R

Just what I needed Great app, user friendly and exactly does the job for me. As small business owner, it takes away headache of doing maths

Hameed Aabid

Good work. Reported a problem I was responded and the issue was fixed pretty soon... Goid work.

James Quinn

The original my gov app was better

Lisa Gowers

Lisa Great for work.

Andrew Boisen

Fantastic The developers have done such a great job.

S Richardson

Tax withheld calculator Since the recent update it am unable to enter numbers into the "Gross Amount" box. This is the main reason I use the app, please fix ASAP. (Old version was excellent, loved it)

Dennis Ho

Terrible Not a native app written for Android. Looks bad and is horribly slow. Avoid.

Qutaiba Mehmood

Can't type Since last update I am unable to use tax calculator

Chris Hitchcock

cannot input numbers on my samsung s5

V Sidhu

Terrible It was good before but got bad after update

Mario Morizzi

Stephen Sizer

Great Very useful source of information

Billy Dodd

Great Really helpful to use

Paul O'Keefe

Takes a long time to set up your account. Was unable to access myTax, was blocked by a pop-up screen that my phone didn't recognise.

Damien Robinson

Worked like a charm. Took me 5 mins to lodge my return

Andre Deuner

Useless The only thing it does is link u to the website. Don't waste data and go straight to ato website

Paul Swindells

0 stars Just send me the paper return...much quicker to fill out...

Mihir Mone

Pathetic All it does ia take you to the website to lodge the tax

Yuka Kawano

ATO finally Easy to access news and updates

Craig Scholl

Easy to use Very useful for those straight-forward questions about tax. As an added bonus I was able to lodge my tax return in about 5 minutes and then check on the progress anytime I thought about it.

paul saffery

disappointed wouldn't load on my Samsung Galaxy SII

Rogue Knight

Galaxy S2 Insufficient space message, but have approx 400mb free. I'll just have to use e-tax I guess :-(

Margurite Saw

Has bugs that need fixing! Tried to lodge my return + wouldn't let me go past the login "Secret" question 3. UPDATE: Tried again - This is a disgrace + an insult to tax payers. GET into the 21st century pronto!

Richard Smyth

Bunch of links and portrait only Pretty lame for a federal government in 2014.

Ian Walles

Useless This is not an app, it's a group of shortcuts to the ATO website and the website is not correctly designed for mobile devices. Very disappointing.

Brett Hoffman

Where is the functionality It doesn't actually do anything?!

james lopes

Links only Only shortcuts to gov websites useful but shamefully

Joel Powell

Tax help in you hand Great app. Easy to use and contains links to info and online services

Doron G

To lodge a tax return I need to log on to my gov, after logging on to my gov a box appears on the screen where you can click skip or next, but it's impossible to go past this box as it won't let you go down to the "skip" button. Please fix it. I've been waiting a year for a reply, obviously no one cares.

Paul Kendall

Hurray! Very good update One question - does it hold your deductions for the financial year even if you get a new phone amd reinstall the app?

Peter S

Very impressed Quite impressed with the voice logon option via the app onto the website. As long as you're confident that it's secure it's a great option thanks. I've had no problems using the app

Paul Hloda

Brilliant. Help you with your own tax affairs.

Mark Griffiths

Online section too slow

Nathan Booth

Almost there Great for entering tax receipts... Just needs some more customisation with categories

Mansoor Ansari

Good Receipts feature is a good addition, but sadly not ordered to businesses


I try to report my wages to centerlink and the app sends me to the centerlink site which asks me to log in when i shouldn't need to as o have it linked

jody dyer

Ato Useless!! Telling me my username is not my username when i know it is. Then when i try to reset it im told my email address is invalid, which it definitely is not. Total piece of crap and waste of time

Bite Me

Useless and confusing Does nothing but redirect you to the ato web site - pathetic waist of our taxes I'd giv it 0 stars if I could

Paulo Gama

Mr Taxman It is getting lot easier now.

David Ralph Lloyd

Great, maybe only a website but I did my BAS lodgement in 10 minutes on my Android tablet, easy, thanks.

Jeff Dobbin

havent looked properly yet

Chris Gevaux

Good log book function Good log book, still some bugs in the expenses

Codie Palmer

Convoluted, too much re-direction and hard to use

charles rey

Cant use for return with money made on abn App says i need to use computer with windows or a mac. App should be able to do it all. Lots of people dont need to type documents and dont have a computer. Just a phone

Fiona Trengove-James

Needs improvement App crashes after taking photos of receipts sometimes. Should be able to have favourite destinations for trips


Is currently down. Dont waste your time. ATO needs to employ competent staff.

Sandra Watts

Specifically Need ETax ....Downloaded but can't even open file??? Frustrating!!!

Alan Cramer

My Deductions Tool no cloud backup In the age where cloud backup providers exist, why is this app not able to backup with Google Drive or Dropbox etc. Creating a zip file is all well and good but this is 2015....not 1995.

Michael Spencer

Great idea however needs support for cloud storage to backup data and receipt photos to a cloud service like dropbox, google drive or microsoft onedrive. Otherwise potential data loss when phone gets lost or stolen.

Kenneth Hurley

Its not an app Its basically a link to the website.

Bruce Hawtin

more trouble than it's worth.I couldn't get it to run.These things need to be Quick & Simple

Granville Westecott

Very limited and aimed at business AFAIK

Matt Tiaiti

Cant even register Try to create a account but my email don't even exist. Bloody!! hell its the same email address that install this crappy App. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE

Evgeni Torgashev

I was hoping to get SIMPLE tax calculators but ATO made the usual way. User unfriendly and probably spent a fortune on development

Abe Lopez

Great ATO is in 21st century

Karyn Smith

ATO app Love it. My deduction tool is very handy

ranjith kumar

Good source of information about ato. .makes much easier

Micky Arora

Tax Very good

Hayden Coonan

A new financial year... Still sad pathetic attempt at programming by a Government Department.. Hire people who can do their job... System errors all over the place, and I can't even get it going let alone lodge! This isn't an app either.. It's a Web portal... There's a difference..

Yvette Bortoli

Worthless - Downloaded the "app" as the desktop version is always having issues. Dont bother its just a portal to the same piece of crap web page.

Emma dagreat

Can't lodge tax The ato suggested for a previous version to use a laptop or desktop computer. Seeing as these sites are not working either this advice is not at all helpful. Same problem as the last guy can't log in to my gov because I can't press skip.

Jen McLellan

Remember me Would be better if it remembered your TFN

Susan Petersen

MyGov frustration MyGov is totally frustrating. Struggling with this site for years.Why is this even linked to ato? Always have to reset password, answer stupid questions and get codes on old phones or not in range. Can't we outsource this to India. I want one password or pin access without the rest of the rubbish.

Deny Kurniawan

Can't login Couple times trying to login but took too long to wait

Lawrence Chong

Pretty impressive If it works and links to your tax filling in July, I'll be really impressed! I noticed there are what appears to be bugs in 'deduction type' - "Work & self education - car"? And "self education" deduction type brings up sub category are related to car repairs.

Peter S

Very impressed It's quite impressive how the ATO has now integrated the option from mobile devices to navigate quite successfully personal accounts it's very helpful it'd be really great if the ATO now could provide the same option for small business and SMSF. Thanks anyway for making the initial move successfully for me anyway

Bec E

Great app So clean and easy to use! Well done ATO on helping people lodge their tax returns easily and quickly.

Andrew Wilson

Bring Back etax This is messed up! It's all over the place. How many millions did it cost to build the new online tax program?.


How am I supposed to enter my deductions? ? I can't receive my last years on this system. . It is absolute junk. Are we supposed to not claim until next year or go and pay $100 to some tax accountant?? So disappointed.

Robert Read

It was much easier to use the etax application as this takes u all over the place. Etax was simple and easy to use this app takes forever to get used to and wastes heaps of time hate it, I have created and saved deductions for my tax but now cant locate them, please advise me where they are hiding. Also cant complete my tax due to the notice that I have a small business but I don't neither do I have investment properties but the pre filled tax form advises me that I have. Now these are causing me to wait until the 14th to yet again try to finish my return. Could you please explain all the above to me, as im getting pretty annoyed at this method on doing tax in 2016

wolf cries

ok it tell me that my deductions is installed on my PC but i cant find it. this is crap it was easyer last year. I dont know why you have to change it all the time. if it aint broke dont fix it.

Michael Woods

Ato Quite a handy app, some useful tools. Is there a way to save a repeating trip for travel expenses? I've been travelling to the same location for a week and every day I have to manually search the start and finish points.

Adam Jay

BRING BACK ETAX Why fix whats not broken. Etax was much easier to use than this nonsense. This just confuses me logging on to different things, downloading apps. Please bring etax back.

Nicki Waters

Wont upload Easy to enter expenses but cant sign into mygov account.. gets stuck before entering details.. so subsequently cant upload into tax return

Faaez Dorani

Can't even log in I've been trying for the last 30 mins to log on. Keeps giving me an error then it goes back to the log in screen. Well done!

Mike Newstead

Deductions??? Impossible to enter deductions such as work related self education...bring back e-tax. At least that could be done easily on a PC.

Chris Whitlock

Pathetic Can't even perform a standard tax return with deductions on my laptop without downloading this wasteful software. This app is as unnecessary as Facebook Messenger

Matthew Bunton

Why? Why is this necessary? An entry field on the tax return mygov page would work equally well wouldn't it? A pointless muck around.

matt jones

Rubbish. Doesnt work. Tells me its been installed but its not there

Adam Ilhan

Great app This app is simple and easy to use when lodging a tax return. Highly recommended

Nathan Mills

How to claim deductions in MyTax The heading is "Deductions, or tax losses from previous years". This is terribly worded. It means "Deductions for last financial year AND older tax losses".


Bring back etax! This is horrible! Why remove etax?

krystal Key

Ummm Why does the ATO need app permission to record audio and my location settings?

Tung Tran

Good App Good app and works as intended, however needs better integration with the website, instead of opening it in browser. Also need to add fingerprint authentication

Elissa Campkin

Incomplete records I was looking for a way to track my home office use like the car logbook. Needs options like logbook for home office added rather than just straight expense entry then would be 5 star.

Tim Eyre

Useless Don't waste your time...

Martin Scharnke

Great Works well

Ferdilyn Daya

kept on stalling, stopping. how can i get my deductions and finish my tax lodgement? This is a horrible app.

Joseph Leeton

Difficult to use Etax was so easy

Sandra Tyrrell

I can't even download the app to my computer. This is absolutely useless. I agree with others stating that the ATO want everyone to use a Tax advisor. looks like I won't be doing a tax return this year as I refuse to pay for someone else to do it for me, when most of them don't know what they are doing.

Marcus Wheeler

Doesn't work Kept adding a deduction and it won't upload it or save it nice scam ATO i have $800 worth of deductions thanks for ripping me off when i have bills to pay

Ha Do

Cant upload the deduction Cant even upload the deduction info after trying so many times. It states upload is unavailable

Shane Lynn

Completely Useless Well done ATO you have made an easy to use system unuseable. How can someone do their tax return from 2015 16 when they cant access those yrs to make their deductions. Because of these design flaws many people will be forced to use a taxation specialist in order to lodge their return for the last financial yr. Job well done. Scarcasim Intended.

robert calder

App was a bit of a pain to use but it worked fine for me. But one thing needs to be fixed. No-where does it actually advise us that we HAVE to use the app to upload deductions when, in fact, we don't. For those thinking that they have to use it, just skip past that part and continue on, you have the options to put the deductions in on your PC under Deductions, or tax losses from earlier years. Hope this helps people who are new to this and are confused.

Fernando Zhang

Cannot access to 15-16 deductions When I select 2015-2016 deductions the app quit itself. I don't know how I'm gonna lodge my tax return now it seems to be the only way to claim deductions.


Worse than ever Keeps telling me to log onto my gov n link when is all ready is

Marion Mayne

Works fine Worled well 15/16 deductions uploaded without any problems

Mike Lyon

Added deduction... save deductions.... zero deductions added. Do I add it again will it magically appear later. Can I just use etax again? That actually worked. Can not add deductions via mytax either. Terrible terrible times.

Kirsten Hardy

Can't upload to do deductions We have significant home office expenses to lodge, don't know why you can only download an app to your phone when you wouldn't do your whole tax return that way. Frustrating. Don't know where to put deduction directly into mytax either

Norijah Hardaker

This is rubbish How are you supposed to upload deductions?

Mark D

Why cant i upload to my rax return? It says no record

Meg Ryan

Can't seem to delete expenses once added. I did a test one and now can't get rid of it. - Thanks for the response!


Just plain bad, voice verification does not work have called ato twice and still not fixed. log on process slow. information badly set out just takes you to website. ATO learn from the centrelink app its not perfect but at least useful!

chris cumberland

Poor app. Bad Can't upload deductions to online return. Can't enter deductions directly to online return. How are we supposed to lodge a return when can't enter data.

Eugene McMahon

Bad update You removed the private use option from the log book. That was a not a very helpful change. Please put it back asap.


Not able to view tax returns Not able to see past tax returns, totally manual process need to go to mygov and request in person and wait for about 2 months to receive. Then why this app is there if no basic functions are available

junlie williarms

So far not good NAB has a better app. I waited so long for this and what a letdown.

Jessica Bourke

Terrible! Not saving me any time at all I can't add deductions to my tax return; type in all the details and click save, then BAM it's gone, again! Cheers for another useless attempt at making all your government-related things into 'simple' aps... Not making life any easier. Bring back eTax.

Trevor Tulloch

Updated and lost all the data I have had a response from the ATO to tell me how to restore the data but the options are not available. Even if I click on the saved file it says no app to open this file. Screwed coz I have to start all over again. Just as well I keep a record in Excel.

Brandon Gibson

Creepy I dont think the ATO needs access to my media files or the ability to record me, and the app wont function without those permissions. I'll pass on fulfilling your voyeuristic dreams thanks.

James Park

once upload then no more add I entered one deduction and upload and tried to add more I cannot add as no edit is allowed. No message when upload about no more add. terrible app and I dont want to use small screen. Why I have to use this app??? Now I dont know what to do to add more deductions. Simple? I dont think so.

Dan Thompson

Scheduled Backups Please I trust you agree this app holds very important data. It's pretty standard for most apps to do an automatic/scheduled backup... would be nice if you guys did too

edward baker

Garbage Crashes, won't backup, won't email data, and now after 2.5mths of putting in data it is refusing to let me add new deductions. Should have used a piece of paper for my log book instead.

Can't view my prefill deductions on My Gov and don't want to use the app. Stuck !!!!

Thomas Crouch

Frustrating Now make our measly returns more difficult than ever to retrieve. Why is this not part of Mygov?


Records are not linked by accounts Switched phone and all my old records are gone...

How are you supposed to open and use this?...

Anatoli Sirota

Good and clear

Luis Benavides

Simple and easy to use. I don't know where the bad reviews come from - the app is simple to use and cover all its baseline expectations. I received my tax refund a week later and the process took me less than 10 minutes. If you're not confident with lodging using this simple app I would recommend you to lodge via an accountant.

Wyverns Rose

Disappointed I hoped like medicare and centerlink it would piggy back other mygov linked services apps. It doesnt. App is a reference to Web addresses doesnt recognise account tokens/pins of other gov accounts. Online services are external links. Bleh. While it may compile data through the year unless that data is linked to their online account a lost damaged or stolen phone will undo all that effort through the year.

jake fly1

Good app. Hi ATO. Can you advise if info stored in this app is backed online. If my phone is lost, stolen or destroyed, will my data (I.E. photos of receipts/log books) be recoverable?

Steve T

Ridiculous MyTax online is showing up with blank screens (obviously rubbish as well) , so I thought I'd try the App. Dont even bother. It's like a group of first year uni kids developed it last minute and didnt bother to check that it worked. I cant believe how many staff they have at the ATO and they can't even deliver a reliable service. Good work team!.... ..

Anne Pennington

I can't even upload a deduction Bring back e tax I can't believe the government wasted money on this new system that clearly has some major issues!! If it worked it would of been an ok idea you can take photos of receipts etc looks like I might have to go to a tax agent this year this sux!!!


Bring back eTax Much preferred the detailed UI of the desktop eTax, having to use my phone is tedious and frankly frustrating. ESPECIALLY doing deductions.

Jamie Gill

Awful ATO forced me to start lodging my BAS (which is usually nil) online. Whenever I try to lodge it I get an error message. I've made no fewer than 8 attempts, and tried their online help to no avail, suggesting I call. We all know that means getting put on hold for an hour. Now, through no fault of my own BAS is overdue. It used to take 1 minute on paper, this has wasted several hours of my time. If you give people no option but to do things online then make sure it works.

Insiya Khandwawalla

Annoying app Doesnt save info after multiple attempts. ATO thinks they are making it easier for tax payers but its the opposite

Adam Patrick

Why How much money did the government waste on this? I don't want to download another app, I just want to do my taxes easily in one go.

Chris Gevaux

Come a long way! Continuously improving and making tax time easier, some issues setting up vehicles and come end of year had trouble as one logbook wasn't closed so percentages were out but easily fixed with a bit of time ?

Remy Bianchini

Constantly crashing and won't upload Absolutely rubbish, constantly crashing and won't upload, getting "unable to upload" every time I try, followed all the steps they gave to fix it and still doesn't work. Waste of money on this app

Dean Moules

Bring back etax This is a complete waste and makes things way more difficult then need be. You can't add deductions to tax form.

Ayesha Allison

Not a great user experience Really annoying and tough to use. Needs a lot of fixes to be useful
